Fuel Pump Relay 2016 Viking

Got burned so I thought I would share. I use my Viking a lot in the winter for ice fishing. Had it out on a weekend where it was warm and rainy. Took it out the next weekend, loaded it up and got out on the ice fine. Was a cold day, around 0 degrees. Got in to move spots and it would turn over but wouldn’t start. Noticed the fuel pump wasn’t engaging. Long story short, it was a frozen fuel pump relay. Had I known at the time which one it was, could have warmed it up and put it back in. The 3 relays on the left of the machine, it’s the middle relay. Replaced it with a solid state relay. Hope this helps anyone else that may get frost bit!

Yeah I think that that was a common problem with them, I think maybe Yamaha even issued a notice about it???

Happened to me this weekend. Had to walk 860 yards back to shore in -20 wind chill. New relay is ordered.
